Coats, like everything else in fashion, have been caught up in the craze for changing fabrics, categories and uses.BTC Once satin, velvet, lace and lame were strictly for evening, but now clothes made of or trimmed in any of these voluptuous fabrics are considered appropriate for day as well as night. Some of these fragile materials have also been treated to wear well in all weather.At the Paris fashion showings last month, several editors were spotted wearing a boxy topper of black velvet with quilted satin sleeves that reversed to a quilted satin lining.

This winter, Katherine Hackett is wearing a hat and coat around her Connecticut house. In order to save on heating costs, she keeps her thermostat set at 58 degrees. After 17 years in the health-care industry, after raising two sons who are now in the military, Ms. Hackett abruptly got a pink slip and has been unemployed for more than a year. But so far, Congress has shown little interest in throwing her a lifeline. By failing to extend the Emergency Unemployment Compensation program, Congress has cut off the jobless benefits that help Ms. Hackett and millions like her keep the lights on and the rent or mortgage paid.

Editor's note: Special buttons taken off an unusual jacket make life a lot more interesting for those who are lucky enough to receive them. The coat that I wear from the fall to the spring Is my chunkiest, funkiest, favorite thing. But the six reasons why it's a magical coat Are the buttons that go from the heel to the throat. The first one says "cold" And the second says "warm," The third plays a tune that would calm any storm. The fourth is a star And the fifth is a stone And the sixth is a doll with a coat like my own. I went out on Monday to see what I'd see, And I saw a young giant who was hot as could be. "The trouble," he said, "With being long in the leg Is the sun fries my head as though it were an egg."

A coat mistake is serious business.A bad choice of blouse can be ignored or covered up with a jacket or sweater, but there's no hiding a wrong coat.So think it over, over lunch or dinner, before you make the final decision and investment. Here, a checklist of reminders:* No coat is an island. Before you're swept away by romantic new designs, think about the rest of your wardrobe. The fashion-followers who can afford to change silhouettes with each season don't have to worry; they've already ditched their boxy blazers and shoulder pads in favor of a leaner line.

OF ALL of the purchases a man might make for fall, a coat is the one most likely to halt him in his tracks. The coat-buying experience makes a man stop, ponder, check his wallet, shake his head in disbelief and hope this winter will be the mildest one yet.So, in the great quest for a new winter coat, there is no room for mistakes. Bad overcoats don't go away quickly. It takes weeks before the checkbook recovers, months before the new trench gets comfortable with the old wardrobe and years before outerwear mistakes land on the clothing give-away pile.

Q: I am only 5 feet 4 inches tall, but I love strictly tailored clothes. Apart from being short, my problem is my hips. They are certainly a lot wider than they should be.Can you suggest a fall outfit that will show off my slim legs but help to disguise my hips?A: I turned to New York designer Michael Kors for an answer. He does sportswear -- separates that you can buy in different sizes to help solve figure problems and still get a coordinated, tailored look.He suggested buying a narrow coat with a matching skirt.

Q: Is there a certain topcoat favored by CEOs and Wall Street executives? If so, what is it and what color do these men choose?A: If you are including the go-over-everything Burberrys-type trench coat, this classic khaki cotton or cotton/polyester coat is preferred by more men (CEOs and others) and worn in more situations than any other coat. But beyond the belted raincoat category, unquestionably, the favorite topcoat is the single-breasted wool Chesterfield, with or without a black velvet collar.

Any minute now, you'll reach for your trusty winter coat. And horrors! That same warm wrap that saw you through several years of weather both fair and foul may look a little wilted, a little tired around the edges.The very idea of buying a new coat is daunting. Unlike purchasing a new dress or sweater, buying a winter coat is a real commitment. It will have to see you through snow and slush, and it will have to cover you (and most of the clothes you own) from dawn through dusk for at least a couple of years.

The conventional political wisdom about Del. Heather Mizeur's pick of the Rev. Delman Coates as her running mate is that it shows her campaign for governor is more about making a point than winning the Democratic primary, much less the general election. But the more interesting question is not what the selection says about the Mizeur campaign than what the Mizeur campaign says about the state of Maryland politics. Reverend Coates is the pastor of the 8,000-member Mount Ennon Baptist Church in Prince George's County.

Del. Heather R. Mizeur has chosen the Rev. Delman Coates - the charismatic pastor of a large church in Prince George's County - as her running mate in the 2014 race for the Democratic nomination for governor, according to a source familiar with the campaign's plans. Mizeur is expected to introduce Coates, senior pastor of Mount Ennon Baptist Church in Clinton, as her choice for lieutenant governor at an event in Silver Spring Wednesday night. Coates, 40, adds racial and gender balance to Mizeur's ticket but leaves the Baltimore area out of the picture.

Leigh Peterson has one of the coolest roofs in Baltimore. Her rowhouse near Patterson Park sports a blinding white cap, topped by a row of shiny solar panels. Peterson, 29, a graduate student at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, doesn't need to see her roof to know it's cool, though. She just has to count the dollars she's saved on air conditioning. She got her roof coated as part of a comprehensive energy retrofit of her 109-year-old house, and her August electricity bill was about half what she paid last year.

Since "long" is the season's fashion buzzword, it goes without saying that a classic long coat is an excellent choice for cold weather this year.Fewer garments pack more potential.Wear a long coat with jeans and boots to football games on weekends, or with a long skirt and platform pumps to the office during the week. Layer it over a dressy suit for a Saturday afternoon wedding, and turn around and don it that night at the ballet with a short, backless dress."It tops off everything you're wearing," says Donna Kimmel, women's wear fashion manager for the Wool Bureau Inc., a marketing organization.

If this is your year for a coat-buying expedition, say mush and go.The hot coat look now is borrowed from arctic explorers and glacier climbers. Call it a parka, anorak or storm coat. It has to say warm, tough and trendy.The familiar storm coat has been pumped up a few degrees, sort of an L. L. Bean-designs-for-Barbie style -- a younger and more energetic point of view. That means more color, a harder, slicker finish and exaggerated details. The hottest cold coats come in emergency squad yellow, traffic cone orange, neons, or sparkly fabrics -- sure to be spotted by a rescue team or fashion watchers.
